    Wondered if anyone has any tips on stopping the water drying on the glass in this sun so quick. I've had some solution once but didn't make a difference

    Just work quick
    I tend to soap up a few windows like normal which 1 cools the glass a bit and 2 starts to soak the stuck on bits
    Then soap a window at a time followed swiftly by the squeegy

    I don't like 1 pass except on real regular work but it would help in this heat to scrub with an applicator and then use the combinator to keep it wet

    Dripping wet applicator, also GG4 does not dry out as quick as dish soaps seem to.

    Use that if needed to clean on the straight sun light.

    The best is to choose your time better when the Windows are on shade side. I do charge extra if working on the shiny side, it is much slower work.

    Or if there are two workers with extension poles one wets and the other use squeegee.
